RIP: Kenny Thornton

The mail will arrive at the same time at houses in Noe Valley and the Castro today. But there will be a definite decline in good cheer. Mailman Kenny Thornton, who walked his route for 31 years, died last week at 72.

"He passed away getting ready for work," said Elizabeth Downing, his supervisor. "He was wearing his uniform."
